Arepas are a staple dish in Colombia and Venezuela. They look like thick tortillas, and they're made from corn, though the flour's texture is a little different from the texture of normal corn tortilla flour. Another difference is that there is salt in the dough, and arepas can be grilled, fried, or baked.
For breakfast, they're delicious stuffed with scrambled or fried eggs, and you can also fill them with cheeses or ham and cheese, shredded chicken, or anything you like. Serve arepas with a cup of coffee. Of course, they're just as delicious for lunch, as a snack, or even for dinner.
In Venezuela, they're served with a sauce called guasacaca which is incredible. But, I like making a sauce out of chopped tomatoes, onions, black pepper, bell peppers, and avocado, to go with these delicious arepas. Yum! The final touch is cooking the scrambled eggs with a little bit of quinoa to make them unique and even more flavorful. Try them, I'm sure you'll love them!
